Your Own Command

This is a Christmas record that you don't see every day. I used to think it was the only Christmas record ever issued on Enoch Light's Command label, but I proved myself wrong. But it still may be the best Christmas record ever issued on Command. And I can prove it! Just download and listen to Merry Christmas From The Command Family Of Recording Stars (Command RS 920 SD, Stereo, 1967). You'll see. (This was first shared by me back in 2006, same year it was a featured LP at FaLaLaLaLa!)
